Talking Points: Records meant to be loud




The Kansas City Chiefs fans are gunning for Seattle’s world record for loudest crowd roar.

From the effort’s Facebook page: “Terrorhead Returns, a grassroots, nonprofit fan movement officially announces; Kansas City Chiefs fans will attempt to set a Guinness World Record for “Loudest Crowd Roar at a Sports Stadium,” on October 13th, 2013 at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri, during their division rival game against the Oakland Raiders.”

It’s good to have goals, but it’s hard to imagine any stadium beating CenturyLink’s mark set Sept. 15 against the 49ers.


Saturday’s Oregon vs. Washington football game is one of the most anticipated games in the rivalry’s history.

Clark County fans might have a challenge finding the game on TV.

The game is airing on Fox Sports 1, a national network in its first year that replaced the Speed Channel on most lineups.

For Comcast customers, the game is on channel 408.

DirecTV customers can find the game on channel 219.

Dish Network offers Fox Sports 1 on channel 150, which isn’t part of its basic package.

Then again, there’s always a sports bar.


Game over, dudes.

Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin has declared the locker room an “entertainment free zone” after the team’s 0-4 start.

The Pittsburgh Post Gazette reports Tomlin took away the pool cues, ping-pong paddles and shuffleboard discs that were as much a part of the South Side locker room as the players themselves. And, according to several veteran players, he won’t return them until the Steelers get “back on track.”

Fair enough, but how else are Steelers players going to feel the thrill of victory?
